Heartfelt Holiday: Pretty and Personal

When Dr. P and I got married, we started sending holiday cards every year. I love snail mail so much but the truth is, I suck at sending birthday cards and letters… it’s something I desperately want to do but I just can’t ever seem to get my act together on it. The funny thing is, I actually have a stockpile of cute cards; I just never remember to drop them in the mail in time! But if there’s one time of year when I can get my butt in gear and send pretty, personal gifts and heartfelt snail mail, it’s the holidays.

This year, I spent some time shopping for the cutest little gift boxes and worked with Amy from 6120creative to add the prettiest tags to each gift. And the sweet and talented Nancy from Natalie Gene Creative did the custom calligraphy. Are these gorgeous or what?

And with baby boy nearly a year old (cannot. handle. it.) I also took the opportunity to have some family photos taken for this year’s holiday card! He’s such a sweet, happy kid and these photos captured his spirit so perfectly. I love all of the customizable holiday card options from Tiny Prints, and couldn’t be happier with the way ours turned out this year! How cute is that buffalo check on the back?

Tiny Prints has some other really great features like addressing your envelopes for you, custom stamps and so much more. I am totally drawn toward all of the gold foil options too — so pretty! Thank you Jessica of Paperhearts Photography for snapping our family photos. These are memories we will treasure forever!

PS, my gal Alli from Guaranteed Giddy is one of the happiest people I know and she finds so much joy in bringing that happiness to others. If you haven’t yet registered to receive “Complimentary Christmas Snail Mail Surprises” from her, do it now! Isn’t that just so sweet and fun for the holidays? Ahhh, love her.

PPS, if you’re busy putting the finishing touches on your holiday gifts, I’ve linked some darling wrapping products below for you, including the boxes and ribbon I bought this year! Remember, it doesn’t have to be elaborate or fancy. Keep it heartfelt, simple, pretty and personal. xo
